There was a nice, long rain delay on Friday night. And as I watched the Twins/Yankees rain delay from the American Bar & Grill in Hector, Minnesota, I figured the best way to tell this game story was through the magic of video. I could have told you about the Twins going 0-12 with runners in scoring position, which is just crazy terrible, or I could just show you one good thing that will make you happy for a better future, and one that will orient you with the terrible now. (If you want a game story, here's Rhett Bollinger's recap.)
The good: Aaron Hicks making a Bo Jackson throw to nail a runner at third base. Thanks to MLB.com for that clip.
The bad: Justin Morneau losing his mind on a check-swing strikeout with about seven runners on base or so. Thanks to @cjzero for the GIF.
